I purchased this book because of it's title and my love of decorating in pink!

Vintage Book, entitled IN THE PINK published by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston in 1950. The author is Mildred Spurrier Topp.

Written on the inside of the jacket cover by way of introduction to this fictional story:
"In the pink of form, in the pink of wit, Mrs. Topp has written a sequel to SMILE PLEASE that makes you laugh one minute and cry the next. Her contagious gaiety and sense of ludicrous situations is only matched by her warm feeling for human nature. "Miss" Tempe DeLancey is a tired little seamstress whose worthless husband has eloped with Hettie McGuire. The runaways not only sold Miss Tempe's most treasured possessions but deserted the three McGuire children. The way in which Miss Tempe met this situation makes a dramatic, hear-warming story with a thrilling climax."

Turquoise blue linen-look hard bound book with its original pink dust cover.

242 pages of text. Size of book is approximately 8 1/2" x 6."

The interior is very clean. The outside of the hard cover book only has a little staining in the top right corner, but it is still firm and like new except for fading in that area.

The dust cover has wonderful graphics and is still in good shape considering the years. It has some wear to the outside edges and top right corner.

A wonderful story to read and a visually appealing book!
